The suspension is in connection with an incident during the Monsoon Session. Earlier on August 11, unruly scenes were witnessed in Rajya Sabha when Opposition MPs climbed on the officials' table, waved black cloth, and threw files when the House began a discussion on farmers' protest against new reform laws.

Meanwhile, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy said that Opposition parties are spreading rumours. "The TRS and a few Opposition parties are spreading rumours. Our government is committed to the welfare of the farmers. Our government will continue with the current paddy procurement policy", he said.
